2013-12-21 - Ten Mormon Temple Hill Climbs

~12 miles @ ~10.5 min/mi

A classic Chrysler convertable with the top down passes during one of ten LDS Temple hill ascents. The driver smiles and waves.

Starting off on this ridiculous warm winter solstice Saturday, with temperatures in the 60's F, it's unclear how many repeats will actually happen. After the first few, however, the old legs settle into a rhythm. Tap a foot on Beach Dr. Climb the slope along Stoneybrook Dr. At Kent St put a hand on the street/stop sign pole and swing around it. Glide back down the hill. Repeat.
